In 1982, a 21-year-old cocktail waitress in Ada named Debra Sue Carter was raped and murdered, and for five years the police could not solve the crime. For reasons that were never clear, they suspected Ron Williamson and his friend Dennis Fritz. The two were finally arrested in 1987 and charged with capital murder. With no physical evidence, the prosecution's case was built on junk science and the testimony of jailhouse snitches and convicts. Dennis Fritz was found guilty and given a life sentence. Ron Williamson was sent to death row.
If you believe that in America you are innocent until proven guilty, this book will shock you. If you believe in the death penalty, this book will disturb you. If you believe the American criminal justice system is fair, this book will infuriate you.

I listened to this audio in my car while driving a distance of 500 miles between two remote areas of South Africa. Before I knew it, my destination was afew miles away and I was listening to the last page! Afterwards, regardless of a tired body, I felt enriched, informed and pondering about all the implications of Grisham's book. On top of everything good, was the narrator; Dennis Boutsikaris! Combine a good book with Dennis and you have a masterpiece! Congratulations Audible!
